To mark his birthday there's going to be a host of celebrations taking place across the world, including the World's Biggest Mickey Mouse Party hosted at Disney Theme Parks all over.

But how much do you know about the mighty Mickey? FUN FACTS | MICKEY Mouse has been featured in 121 animations and featurettes at the cinema including 118 between 1928 and 1953.

| HE made his debut in Steamboat Willie - the first-ever fully synchronised sound animated short cartoon.
